The burden was all consuming, so I took it to God one day. On bended knee, I laid it down and asked Him to show me the way.
The answer came back from the pages,
A voice to my heart, seemed to say;
“Cannot I do, with you my child,
as this potter did, with the clay?
behold, as he held it in his hand
so you have been placed, in mine,
and the darkest marks, which were never planned,
are now part of my grand design."
As I read on a little further,
the Word came again to me
"I have loved you with everlasting love,
there is nothing too hard, for me"
So I trust the One, who with outstretched arm
made the earth and heavens above,
who in loving kindness drew me forth
in His mercy and perfect love.
He knows the many impurities
of the clay that is in His hand,
the blemishes, cracks and stains of sin,
the things, I cannot understand.
That can have no place in His finished work
a vessel of honour to be,
so I yield to His loving and nail scarred hands
as He works out His plan, for me.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
